Try adjusting the knob the other way. It sounds to me like you're going backward. Screw the knob all the way the other way and then try another shot. Trust me. It's more common than you'd think.

Try reversing the rings. Move the back one to the front, and the front one to the back. Turn your elevation adjustment, back to -0-, and start again.

My Bushnell Banner rifle scope 3x9x40 ia at max elevation and shoots low The scope is used on a marlin 1894c underlever rifle and attached to a weaver rail how can i fix this problem


you might be able to buy a weaver rail adapter that can change your elevation aswell as lift up your scope a bit just to make it a bit easier to see out of. try something like this maybe http://ant-supplies.co.uk/DovetailtoWeaverAdapters.aspx

My Weaver Classic riflescope is maxxed out for elevation


I don't think the tube holding the cross hairs will go up that high, and shimming the front base, I don't know. What you need is a new cross hair with the dots below the cross, They will raise your line of sight past the 350 zero. Or,,,,, just put the cross at the top of your target, 600 yards without the right scope is a long shot. I hope you have a heavy barrel target rifle in 308 or bigger. My M42 is unbelievable, but, It will shoot better than me all day long and I rarely go over 200 yards. I tried the 600 yard line once, didn't like it. Oh I could hit the target, but I like hitting doorknobs at 200 yards better. What are you shooting anyway? I hope your not trying to stretch out a 223 to the max.

Bushnell Trophy scope on BLR .308 -- was fine when last used but now shoots 4 ft high at 100 yards and elevation screw is maxed out -- doesn't seem to have moved in rings and no visible sign of damage --


Rap it on its nose. Us a good screw driver and just give it a tap, not so hard to dent it but a good smack. with the handle. If this does not work remove it smack it, then remount, putting the rings is a small bit different location.

To adjust the vertical on a Bushnell Banner scope, which way do I turn the screw and how much. I am 6 inches high


The top turret should be the one you need. You should see an U or D with an arrow pointing in one direction or another. Your scope should move the point of impact 1/4 inch at 100 yards for each click. Moving the adjustment 24 clicks in the down direction should fix you up if you are shooting at 100 yards. The movement will be linear for other distances.

Scope elevation adjusted allthe way up & still shoots low


Bushnell sells nylon inserts for scope rings that fit inside of the scope rings and will affect the height of the ring to correct the problem. If you install them on the front scope ring, it will correct it and realign the rings correctly. It appears that the front ring towards the muzzle is not as high as the rear ring near the breach. This is why that even though the scope's adjustment is elevated as high as it will go, it is still hitting low because it is actually pointing down because apparently the rear ring is higher off the barrel than the front ring. The Bushnell inserts can correct this.

Bushnell banner elevation maxed out


It sounds as if your Scope rings are out of alignment or the front ring is lower than the rear ring. You may be able raise the bottom of the front ring by inserting a shim under the front ring base.

Scope out of elevation adjustment


If you are sure that the scope was mounted correctly to begin with, ie plenty of elevation left THEN you can install a slanted rail that will increase you elevation potential. Of course, that comes at the cost of having less elevation at the lower end.

A second solution is rings, like those by Burris with the plastic inserts. They have an accessory insert kit for these Signature Zee rings that will let you increase your elevation. Rings are ca 30 and the kit'll be ca 10, so 40 total.

If you're just missing a wee bit of elevation you could just lightly shim the scope in your current rings.
